Are We Testing Missiles Here?

A fisherman catches a live air-to-air missile off the Florida coast in the Gulf of Mexico.  Fisherman tells his buddies he almost had an Ohio Class ballistic missile submarine, but it got away.

    It was no doubt making its way from a US gun show to Mexico.

  2. That’s an AIM-9 Sidewinder. Probably spent in a live fire exercise.

    Oooh, a gratuitous “Money Pit” reference! Nice!

    There’s all kinds of interesting stuff that gets churned up in the Gulf after a storm. Back in the ’60’s I saw an ejection seat and parts of an F-106 wash up on the beach in Key West after a hurricane.
